A compilation of insights and Q&A on egg freezing, emotions of the donor egg journey, questions to ask before selecting an egg bank, and much more. This guide is for you if:
you are wondering whether egg freezing is a good option for you and want the viewpoints of others who faced that decision;
fertility testing has revealed that your eggs might be beyond their expiration point for a viable pregnancy — or you have done too many cycles of IUI and IVF with your own eggs — and want to research another option to motherhood: how did women choose between egg donation and embryo donation?
you are grieving the loss of a genetic connection to your future child and want to understand how other women made the leap and how this might affect your relationship with your future child;
you are confused about the myriad options — in-house fertility clinics, free-standing egg agencies, private egg donors, fresh vs. frozen — and want to know what questions to ask before making a selection;
you are looking for a script about how to talk to your child about being conceived from donor eggs
